[ Editor’s Note: Maxwell’s gamble to not testify, which would have exposed her to cross examination, rendered her part of the audience in her own trial. What a shame that Epstein did not have a seat next to her to watch the show.

The case will go on with appeals, plus more victims are waiting in line. Fortunately for Ghislaine she can foot the legal bills. It remains to be seen if she will give up others to get a reduced sentence.

If convicted, she’s looking at a lot of time, a life sentence when you are 60. What money she has left will be pounced on in all the damage cases victims will be going for, now that she has blood in the water with the first case lost.

I would bet she is not going to go down alone, and will want some company from some of the Epstein party crowd that partook of the forbidden fruit. But whether prosecutors would want to take the personal risk to go after some of the infamous Epstein celebrities is anyone’s guess.

It’s a happy day for the many other Epstein and Ghislaine victims, as he is dead and the legal sharks will be circling for whatever is left floating in the water as compensation for their abuse.

This ends my cheery missive for today, especially for these four ladies and the tough road they have had all these years watching the Epstein party roll on and onJim W. Dean ]

Year after year, day after day, Epstein and Trump “besties”

First published … December 29, 2021

The British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted Wednesday of luring teenage girls to be sexually abused by the American millionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

The verdict capped a month-long trial featuring sordid accounts of the sexual exploitation of girls as young as 14, told by four women who described being abused as teens in the 1990s and early 2000s at Epstein’s palatial homes in Florida, New York and New Mexico.

Jurors deliberated for five full days before finding Maxwell guilty of five of six counts.

…There were bank records showing he [Epstein] had transferred $30.7 million to Maxwell, his longtime companion — one-time girlfriend, later employee.

But the core of the prosecution was the testimony of four women who said they were victimized by Maxwell and Epstein at tender ages.

…Maxwell, 60, vehemently denied the charges through her lawyers. Still, she declined to take the risk of testifying, telling the judge: “The government has not proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt so there is no reason for me to testify.”

…Maxwell still awaits trial on two counts of perjury.

Lawsuits involving the abuse allegations also continue, including one in which a woman not involved in the trial, Virginia Giuffre, says she was coerced into sexual encounters with Prince Andrew when she was 17. Andrew has denied her account and that lawsuit is not expected to come to trial for many months.

  1. Was money from the royal family flowing to Epstein through Barclays via Jes Stanley ? Was Cambridge Analytica the operation to install the compromised targets in the US ?
    It is time to open the investigation into the original deal by Acosta, and make it public.
    I’d give her one bottle of wine for Andrew, don’t we already have a preponderance of evidence..but I’d give her a kitchen and bathtub for dershowitz, trump, and clinton.
    Taking down one ex pres from each party might be the best service for the people. Unity !
    I propose Buckingham Palace as the ideal place for the US embassy to both Britain and Israel.

    • My curiousity will be how many others might be coaxed to come public about the long list of celebrity molesters, unless we are to assume that only Epstein, Ghishlaine and the Prince participated. Even with the Prince, and others at that level, you would find national intelligence ‘involvement’ in wanting sleepind dogs to lie, for ‘the good of the country’. And the big lie in that is that if the old one can’t be prosecuted fully to establish a serious deterent, then what is currently going on will not be stopped. Notice how no big political wheel running for high office mentions making this a high priority.

    • Jim, with I think 250 women getting compensation from the Epstein victims compensation fund, think of the hundreds if not thousands of men in high positions that were compromised.

  2. As Mike always said, “These people think 500 years ahead”.
    The demolition of The United States culture clicks up another notch.
